112th Congress: 28 Bills to Repeal Patient Protection Act in 11 Days, But Nothing to Create Jobs

I see our elected representatives are hard at work, representing their constituencies. Not that those constituencies even vaguely represent voters, you understand. No, they would like to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act 28 times. In 11 days, no less. What busy little beavers they are!

Here's a list as of today, divided by House and Senate.

House
H.R. 105 Dan Burton, GOP Indiana : To repeal the Patient Protection Act & enact in its place incentives for people to buy health insurance.
H.R. 118 John Fleming, GOP Louisiana : To permit a state to elect not to have an American Health Care Exchange.
H.R. 119 John Fleming, GOP Louisiana : To prohibit hiring of irs agent to implement or enforce health insurance reform.
H.R. 127 John Graves, GOP Georgia : To de-authorize funding of Patient Protection Act.
H.R. 141 Steve King, GOP Iowa : To repeal the Patient Protection Act.
H.R. 145 Connie Mack, GOP Florida : To repeal the Patient Protection Act.
H.R. 154 Ted Poe, GOP Texas : To prohibit any federal funds to be used to enforce Patient Protection Act.
H.R. 171 Cliff Stearns, GOP Florida :
H.R. 2 Eric Cantor, GOP Virginia : Repeal of Patient Protection Act.
H.R. 38 John Fleming, GOP Louisiana : Rescind funds authorized for Patient Protection Act.
H.R. 9 David Drier, GOP California : Requires Committees to look into Patient Protection Act.
H.R. 26 David Drier, GOP California : Repeal Patient Protection Act.
H.R. 215 Don Young, GOP Alaksa : Repeal Patient Protection Act.
H.R. 19 John Carter, GOP Texas : Disapprove rules on MLR in Patient Protection Act.
H.R. 299 John Carter, GOP Texas : Repeal Patient Protection Act.
H.R. 358 Joe Pitts, GOP Penn : Remove abortion funding from Patient Protection Act (there is none)
H.R. 360 Michael Burgess Texas : Amend Patient Protection Act to include President in Health Care Exchanges.
H.R. 364 Tom Latham, GOP Iowa : To Repeal Patient Protection Act
H.R. 371 Marsha Blackburn, GOP Tennessee : Repeal Title I of Patient Protection Act.
H.R. 5 Phil Gingrey, GOP Georgia : Repeal Patient Protection Act.
H.R. 397 Wally Herger, GOP California :Repeal Patient Protection Act.
H.R. 429 Darrell Issa, GOP, California Repeal Patient Protection Act.
H.R. 452 Phil Roe, GOP, Tennessee A bill to repeal Patient Protection Act.
H.R. 450 Dave Reichert, GOP, Washington A bill to repeal Patient Protection Act.

Senate

S. 19 Orrin Hatch, GOP Repeal Health Mandate & therefore repeal patient protections.
S. 17 Orrin Hatch, GOP Repeal Tax on Medical Devices
S. 16 David Vitter, GOP Repeal Patient Protection Act
S. 196 Chuck Grassley, GOP, Iowa A bill to to provide congressional staff gets to participate in Exchange.
S. 192 Jim DeMint, GOP, South Carolina A bill to repeal health care.

I thought it might be interesting to see what Democrats did in their first 11 days after assuming control of the House in 2006. Well, lookee there. All sorts of interesting bills in those first days. Everything from gun show loophole closures (David Dreier's baby) to First Amendment protections, to small business assistance to alternative energy.

But for Republicans and their keepers, this Congress is all about sticking it to Obama. Nothing more, nothing less.
